Hello,

I'm Gman. I've been carving various forms and materials for 31 years.

Here is a sampling of some of the Oceanic Art I have posted in this TC thread in the last few years. If you browse the thread you will see pics of each of these pieces in progress plus many more.





























































Here are a few pieces I am currently working on......

I, too, like the only one that was allowed inside the house.

That shark's coming out real nice- I'd like to see his progress! Keep us posted!

Yeah, I agree, nice sharky.

I like the light blond tiki that's kind of bent over. And the trio of tikis for some reason, seem like they should be sold in a trio or placed together -- a three-stooges set!

How difficult is it using a chain saw verses carving. For a novice here, that is still trying to get up the courage to purchase some carving tools....just wondering.

Really nice work, you should be proud. Every Tiki is great and the shark is amazing.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PRODUCING THESE FINE TIKIS?

Nice work GMAN.
I also use a chainsaw almost exclusively. I also like to carve it in one session. Spare chains, plenty fuel, oil. Once I get going I hate stopping for anything.

The shark looks great. All chainsaw? Damn dats good!!

JT,

Unfortunately, the shark isn't a chainsaw-only carving. I used a saber saw to cut out the fins, and I'm using a disc to shape them. I did the main body with the chainsaw but had to hit it with a file to smooth it out.

Well, I don't breath any air, other than oxygen.

Let me guess, you're from Florida...

Cool tikis dude. A lot of detail for chainsaw only. I am kinda interested in chainsaw carving, but I like my fingers.
